One of the four main stars of the long-running NBC hit “Seinfeld” is headed back to TV. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Jason Alexander will star in a new comedy project for Adult Swim.
The project is a live-action quarter-hour pilot from Adam Lustick of “Silicon Valley.” The project is currently untitled.
The comedy “revolves around an award-winning psychotherapist (Alexander) who snaps one day, and his therapy with his patients becomes more and more bizarre,” THR reports. “However, he’s such a celebrated doctor that his peers are reluctant to question his strange and unconventional methods.”
The project comes from Adult Swim’s Alive and Kicking Inc.
Since “Seinfeld” wrapped in 1998, Alexander has had a short run on the CBS sitcom “Listen Up” in 2004-2005.
